One of the most refined and perfect of operas, Iphigénie En Tauride is a stark, beautiful account of the meeting of Iphigenia and Orestes, children of Agamemnon, in the aftermath of the Trojan War.

When Oreste is shipwrecked on the island of Tauride, the King Thoas demands he be sacrificed. At the center of the drama is Iphigénie: forced to live among her enemies, she holds Oreste’s life in her hands – unaware that he is her brother. 

Gluck’s opera is an eloquent, heart-wrenching masterpiece.

ETO are now an Olivier Award winning company having won the Outstanding Achievement in Opera Award at 2014’s ceremony.
